While NA looks ready for upsets, Europe’s groups are a little more open across the board with the only standout winners being eUnited, Misfits and Movistar Riders. That leaves five spots in the EU playoffs up for grabs to any variety of the mix of professional and amateur teams that make up these groups.

The Group Stages will be held across two weekends with Europe kicking off on Saturday, June 17 and North America following on June 18. The teams will play each member of their group twice with the top two teams from each group advancing to the Overwatch Contenders Playoffs that will be held July 1-2.
